In Shakespeare’s play

From the February 2012 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Joy Cusack––staff

In Shakespeare’s play Much Ado About Nothing, one character asks another: “Why, what’s the matter, that you have such a February face, so full of frost, of storm and cloudiness?” Well, we hope this month’s issue puts another face on February—more of a countenance—which along with being defined as “the way one looks” also means “calm and composed . . . full of support.”

In the second installment of our 2012 Manual By-Law series, Tony Lobl shares insight into “Christ Jesus the En-sample.” He rests his case on Jesus’ life of healing as supreme proof of an infinite, loving God, and that this By-Law, set forth by Mary Baker Eddy, assures us, “No conversion tactics, no intellectual persuasiveness, no opinionated or judgmental coercion is called for or needed.” Close at hand is a wide embrace: “Individuals of all faiths and philosophies, and of none, deserve but one label . . . ‘cherished and beloved fellow children of God.’ ”
